Virginia has become a battleground state in recent presidential elections. President Barack Obama won the state last year, with 51 percent to Mitt Romney's 47.3 percent.
In the 2009 election, Republican Bob McDonnell defeated Democrat Creigh Deeds, winning 59 percent of the vote. McDonnell is now embroiled in a scandal over undisclosed gifts. Governors in Virginia cannot serve consecutive terms.
Voters in Virginia's 10 densest cities and counties — six of which are in Northern Virginia — supported President Barack Obama last year.
Areas where white residents make up a smaller share of the population tended to favor President Barack Obama more heavily in last year's election.
McAuliffe has said he supports using an Obamacare provision to expand Medicaid in Virginia to provide insurance to 400,000 more residents. Cuccinelli opposes an expansion.
